First Demonstration of Multi-Vendor and Multi-Domain EON with S-BVT and Control Interoperability over Pan-European Testbed

The operation of multi-domain and multi-vendor EONs can be achieved by interoperable Sliceable Bandwidth Variable Transponders, a GMPLS/BGP-LS-based control plane and a planning tool. This paper reports the first full demonstration and validation …

100G beyond Ethernet Transport for Inter- and Intra-DCN Communication with Solutions and Optical Enabling Technologies in the ICT STRAUSS Project

A multi-domain optical infrastructure with end-to-end Ethernet transport capability can deliver Ethernet services over a large scale and provide a promising solution for inter data center networks (DCN) communication. The already existed metro and …

IDEALIST Data Plane Solutions for Elastic Optical Networks

The elastic optical networks paradigm offers a competitive solution in terms of resource utilization to cope with the ever-increasing traffic demand. Specifically, the ability to make a number of previously fixed transmission parameters tunable, for …

Archon: A Function Programmable Optical Interconnect Architecture for Transparent Intra and Inter Data Center SDM/TDM/WDM Networking

This paper reports all-optical, function programmable, transparent, intra- and inter-data center networking (DCN) using space and time-division multiplexing (SDM/TDM) within data centers and wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) between data …

Real-Time Ethernet to Software-Defined Sliceable Superchannel Transponder

Optical Ethernet gains great success in varied optical domains. Ethernet while providing the elastic allocation of bandwidth per flow is currently restricted to being transported over fixed-rate fixed-grid optical channels. However, as data …

DORIOS: Demonstration of an All-Optical Distributed CPU, Memory, Storage Intra DCN Interconnect

We show an all-optical ultra-low latency server-to-remote memory/storage data center interconnection, exploiting programmable, flexible, bi-directional and data-rate transparent 4×16 Spectrum Selective Switches and supporting elastic WDM/TDM services …

Programmable Optical Packet/Circuit Switched Data Centre Interconnects: Traffic Modeling and Evaluation

A programmable all-optical data center network architecture with great scalability and flexibility is proposed and evaluated by a statistic data center traffic model to obtain the best utilization efficiency for optical packet/circuit switched …
